Where can we buy protandim form ?Is there is specific dose for the kids ?or they take the same dose as adults.Any body who is using this please give this info .
"A study with MDX mice revealed that the use of ten times the human dose of Protandim in the mice for 6 months was safe and well tolerated. After 6 months of taking Protandim, 48% percent average decrease in serum TBARS was seen; 0.92nmol/mg in controlsResults: (n=9) versus 0.48 nmol/mg in Protandim® group (n=12; p=0.006). The muscle TBARS at 6 month were lower in the Protandim® treated mice. After six months, the mdx mice on control diets showed increased MRI signal abnormality (p=0.07) compared to mice on Protandim®. The use of Protandim® in this 6 month study did not significantly improve muscle strength, imaging characteristics nor histological criteria."
Interpreted - the Protandim did what it claimed in the MDX mouse ONLY, decreased serum TBARS. No trials were performed on humans with DMD. The mice showed decrease amounts of oxidative stress via a decrease in serum TBARS.
Decreasing oxidative stress is good for all of us - I would guess that decreasing oxidative is good, especially those comprimised with DMD.
